Hybrid​ ​iOS​ ​and​ ​Android​ ​app​ ​with​ ​website​ ​interface​ ​for​ ​connecting​ ​shippers with​ ​carriers

The advancement of online mobile applications has made it easy for the users to receive many services at their door steps. This helps in making their life much easier. Our client came up with a unique idea of developing an application that connects shippers with carriers. This in turn reduces the shipper’s effort of finding a suitable carrier to carry his shipment.The carrier is also benefited, as he is open to a more wide range of shippers, which means more business. An individual carrier or a company registered for carriers along with the shippers can function through this App.

AIM

The aim of the app is to connect 4 user types : Shippers(Users) , Independent drivers(carriers) , Carrier Companies (Dispatchers) , Carrier Company drivers(Dispatch drivers). The client wanted an innovative design and easy to use interface. He also needed real time tracking of the shipment.

APPROACH

​ ​For handling all the payment distributions and split payments Stripe is being used which is more convenient and user friendly. Real time tracking is handled using native plugins for both iOs and Android. Automatic price calculation for immediate hauls (shipment items) is performed using the distance and time calculations with the help of Google API.
